What did I confuse him with?

My friend took an off guard snapchat of me and captioned it "do you think she's attractive because she thinks you are" and sent it to my crush. He responded with "you think I'm attractive?" and I said yea and then he said that I should've told him this earlier. Then he told me he was confused. I asked him why and he never responded... What could he be confused about and why should I have told him earlier?
